Nestled between Italy, Croatia and Austria, Slovenia is a hidden gem offering sparkling lakes, turquoise rivers and breathtaking Alpine scenery. Plan a luxury holiday to Slovenia with Lightfoot Travel and prepare for somewhere extra special.
The charm begins at capital city Ljubljana, one of Europe’s most fresh, graceful and green capitals (it’s the European Green Capital 2016). Car traffic is restricted in the centre, leaving the leafy banks of the Ljubljana River for pedestrians and cyclists. Streets are lined with pastel Baroque architecture and beautiful bridges, the riverside bars come with a buzzy hustle and bustle, and the museums and restaurants are some of the best in the country.
To the west of Ljubljana, Lake Bled takes centre stage as one of many of Slovenia’s stunning lakes with its emerald waters, picturesque islet, and backdrop of the Julian Alps. Next door, Lake Bohinj and the region’s small rural towns are less visited but equally as relaxing and offer a wealth of activities from swimming and kayaking to horse riding.
No visit to Slovenia is complete without a visit to Postojna Cave system, an extensive underground system of 24km long and two million years old. Let our guides escort you through the tunnels, halls, galleries, caverns, and past stalactites on a journey like no other. Complete your adventure at magnificent Predjana Castle.
In Idrijia, the mystery continues in the underground mines where you can discover where lace making comes from. Nearby you’ll find the deepest lake in Slovenia, the Wild lake, and the remarkable stone river dams known as ‘klavže’, or ‘The Pyramids of Slovenia’.
